It is typical to buy or make a card for Mum and to write a poem or other special message inside to let her know how much you care about her. Many people also take care of the chores for their mother on Mother’s Day, take her out to dinner, or go as a family to a picnic, park, mall, or another interesting outing.

These days, social media sites have become a new centre of Mother’s Day messages for many Kenyans. The most common gift ideas for Mum in Kenya include flowers, jewelry, clothing, and homemade gifts like decorations, sweets, or clothing.
